The Toyota Corolla allows you to program transponder keys into your engine to control the start of your car. These keys, also known as chip keys or smart keys, are electronically synced to your engine as an added measure of security and convenience. Once programmed, only a transponder key can start your car. You can program the keys yourself in just seconds from the driver’s seat of your 2009 Corolla.
